update (08 May 2012): The SA National Taxi Council (Santaco) had to postpone the start of its airline again, because the council failed to secure a legally binding agreement with Standby Travel, Cape Town company. In addition, Santaco has yet to reach an agreement with Lanseria International Airport on its use.
